FrontierVille: Hank's makeover gets mixed response; what do you think?

New Hank vs. Old Hank

Another set of Goals in FrontierVille is through for the super fans and Hank just got a brand new look. After creating a Barber Shop and completing the Goals attached to it--along with Hank's own mission of self improvement--the General Store manager will never be the same. In fact, FrontierVille forum moderator Miss Marme put out a poll on the forums asking players what they thought of the new Hank.

While a majority of the voters claim to like his new look, the comments tell a vastly different story. So much so that even one user, BeetleQueen, created her own mock-up of what she thinks the new Hank should look like. The general tone of the responses in the four-page thread is, for lack of a better word, the heebie-jeebies. Honestly, I'd have to agree. Just a question: Does the Barber Shop do underground cosmetic surgery on the side?

"Don't like it... The artwork for the "New Hank" doesn't blend with the rest of the artwork for the game, especially the other NPCs and player avatars," forum user JP323 said. "It's too refined and chiseled while the rest are more cartoony/caricaturized." I was under the impression that Hank just needed a haircut and a shave--not a restructured jaw line, a new chin and a nose job. Sure, we all thought Hank was a little creepy before, but this new look might take the cake.
